    Hi @Rust_ee I gave away most but I have some left, not too much excess at the moment. @Hendre called dibs on some already.
    Are there other plants you’re looking for?

    I have a betta sorority and any plants except hornwort and cabomba are welcomed. These 2 dont seem to like my water for some reason so it always either grows slow or dies. I now have 2 pieces of large vallis growing but I think i need better light and as I was telling a friend the other day, I need to get serious about a planted aquarium, aka the proper resources etc

    Is it for this tank?

    I always have lots of giant baby tears to share, and can probably share some java fern babies at the moment if you’re willing to come to Rondebosch.

    I wish. That tank I stripped of plants cos the angelfish kept nipping at them til most of the plants lost leaves. He ate up most of the frogbit I had in there. I've attached an image of the girls tank, I feel it's still missing some green. They're more appreciative of the extra hiding places.

    Hornwort (from the pond) and giant baby tears. Quite a lot of both.
    Let me know quick before it goes to the compost :)

    Can also give you some of this. Not sure what it is but not hornwort. Doubt that it will fit in your scape though.

    I will take it maybe we can arrange for Saturday for pick up. I am in Mitchells Plain and work in century city if its closure during the week.

    I am happy to take baby tears, rotala and the one in the picture as it might help the 900cm with the initial mineral spike. I use the floating plants to eat up the nutritions.

    I need to thin out the floating plants in my pond to give the fish some swim space. PM me for species info if you’re interested. Perhaps for your own pond or a breeding tank.
